Bamfield is remote. It has a clinic with a small medical dispensary, staffed by a nurse. The closest doctor and hospital are in Port Alberni, two hours away by logging road. In the event of an emergency, evacuations by boat/helicopter are possible and dependent on weather. For these reasons, BMSC takes its students’ medical conditions very seriously.
